When little Harriet (now named Pippa) arrived at the Atlanta Humane Society, it was hard to tell what kind of animal she was. At 8-weeks-old, she was less than two pounds and covered head-to-toe in itchy, painful sores. A quick diagnostic test confirmed that this sweet girl had demodectic mange, which was making her miserable.
Her skin was hot to the touch because of the infection, and she needed immediate medical attention. Her feet and belly were raw, and she shivered with chills. Our Shelter Medicine Team immediately gave her medication for her skin condition and found the perfect foster home for her to heal.
She’s receiving warm, soothing medicated baths weekly and is also receiving antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection. Life wasn’t kind to Harriet before she came to AHS, but now she’s receiving more love and care than she could ever have imagined. She goes to work with her foster mom every day and even has her own Instagram account!
Your support makes it possible for us to care for vulnerable animals like Harriet and ensure that they are loved for the rest of their lives.
